  1. Management And Organizational Aspect :

Appraisal of management is very important part of project appraisal .The successful implementation and running of the project rests primarily , on the resourcefulness , competence and integrity of its management .There are not sets of rules to find out if the borrowers’ are persons of integrity .It is done by direct and indirect investigation .The borrowers’ experience and capabilities can be assessed by his educational background ., business experience , general reputation and above all , his /her receptiveness to new ideas and potentially to lean new things . Closely related to the management is the type of organization structure necessary to carry out and operate the project successfully.

Appraisal of management and organization of a project can not be done adequately without undertaking credit investigation. The credit worthiness of the sponsors is assessed , among others by way of obtaining credit reports from the various banks and financial institutions .

Technical appraisal report is prepared by an engineer of the appraisal section to see whether the project is sound with regard to every engineering and technological consideration , including product specification , product process , size internal balance , suitability and availability of physical facilities ,design and layout of equipment and building etc. The BDBL has to ensure that the project is soundly designed and appropriately engineered . More concretely , technical appraisal is concerns with question of physical scale , layout and location of facilities ;the technology to used , including types of equipment or processes ; the appropriateness to local condition of technical standard adopted ; the approach to be followed for the provision of services ; the realism of the implementation schedule ; and the likelihood of the achieving the expected levels of output .

A critical part of technical appraisal is a review of the cost estimated and engineering and other data , which they are based to determine whether they are accurate with an acceptable margin . The technical appraisal is also concerned with estimating the costs of operating project facilities and services and with the availability of necessary raw material and other output . The potential impact of the project on the human and physical environment is also examined , to make sure that any adverse effects can be controlled or minimized .

The ultimate aim of project appraisal is to determine the profitability of the project both from commercial and social point of view. This can not be undertaken unless a thorough a technical study and cost analysis is made and related technical problem solved . Thus the technical study and cost analysis provide the basis both for the initial estimated of the profitability of an investment during the initial stage and also for the final decision to implement the project . The technical appraisal, therefore, constitute the foundation of the entire structure of project appraisal.

The basic aspects of technical appraisal are:

· Preliminary investigation of products /services, various inputs such as raw materials, technology required etc.

· Selection of product process involving the choice of alternatives, wastage , by product , disposal of waste and effluents etc.

· Machinery and equipment for products and services .

An industrial projects is expected to bring in some goods and services for the community. But the community may not need them infinitely . Their demand may be finite but at the given price . The objective of the market study is to see how much of the foods and services the community is supposed to acquire and at what price . In other words , the market analysis is concerned with the study of the demand for a project’s output .

The demand for products and services changes over time as a function of price , income and other variable . It is thus necessary to estimate how much the project cak sell in the short and long run taking these variables into consideration. Generally the actual consumption or the effective demand for an output in physical quantities is determined taking into consideration . Production, imports , exports and changes in stock position . In absence of adequate information, apparent consumption method is used as an approximation to true consumption .

The future demand for goods and services of an industrial projects is determined on the basis of trend extrapolation . In a large number of cases , data relation to past levels of consumption , income and prices are not available .In such cases, the trend method is used for projecting future demand . This is done by way of establishing a median line between the quantities consumed over a number of years and estimating the future demand in accordance with the trend of this line .

Intermediate goods are the facilitate production of final consumer goods .Therfore the demand for the intermediate goods is linked with the activities in the using sector . For example , the demand for yarn will large depend on the prospect of development in the weaving sector .

The demand for capital goods is estimated based on the rate and volume of investment in the using industry , durability of capital goods , technological innovation etc. In the demand projection of import substituting goods , the level of imports is taken as the indicator .

§ Cost competition .

It is concerned with assessing the feasibility of a project from the point of view of its financial result . The project direct costs and benefits be calculated in pecuniary terms at the prevailing market prices . The BDBL has to satisfy itself not only about the current solvency of the projects but also about its continued solvency during the currency of the loan to ensure timely payment of the principle , regular payment of interest and adequacy of physical assets representing security for the loan . The relevant information collected on technical , economical and management aspect of the projects have got direct bearing upon the financial appraisal . Such appraisal is directed to examine mainly the following aspects :

    1. Financial requirement to bring the projects into existence and the probable sources of finance .
    2. Prospect of adequate revenue generation with particular emphasis on actual cash generation (liquidity ) and probable impact on the financial condition (solvency ).

The first aspect deals with total cost of the projects (fixed cost and net working capital )and a suitable financial arrangement .The second aspect related to the analysis of production , cost , income etc. at different volumes of production at different levels of activity . BDBL focus of attention is on the earning of the projects . Earning should be sufficient so as to enable the projects to services its debt (installment and interest ).There are various approaches for financial appraisal of which the following techniques are being used by the BDBL.
